Changes to Cardiff garden waste collections in your area

As we move into autumn, Cardiff kerbside garden waste collections will be collected monthly from October 4th until November 25th giving residents two further green waste collections from their home before the service is suspended during December, January and February.

Figures show that the amount of garden waste collected from residents’ homes reduces by 80% over the winter season. With this significant reduction, waste collection crews from Cardiff Council will focus on the collection of food waste, black bag waste and recycling which significantly increases as we approach the Christmas season, as people spend more time at home.

One-off collections will be arranged over the festive season to remove Christmas trees from residents’ homes, with community big sweep events and the leaf fall street cleansing team continuing to operate over the winter months.

Throughout the winter, residents can continue to bring their garden waste to either recycling centre at Lamby Way or Bessemer Close by booking an appointment online.

Collection calendars on the council’s website and the Cardiff Gov App are being updated and the council would like to thank residents for their patience while this takes place.
